Forbidden Fruit

Since my unfortunate predicament of unemployment, change has become an unwelcomed house guest.

Like dominoes; change continues to fall, one after the other…………….

Change in routine, change in finances, change in eating habits, change in exercise, change in relationships, change, change, change.

I’m not very good with change.

I no longer get up to a shrill alarm clock at 5:30 a.m. to prepare my meals for the day, and aside from the 2 1/2 to 3 miles I walk most days, I’ve become sedentary. I do have more time to write and work on my photography, so I spend a lot of time at my computer.

Half the day is spent looking for a job.

It’s just me and my cat, so I don’t have much housework to do. So when you’re sedentary, things you would rather stay somewhat north, start going south and you start adding a little extra baggage in those south bound areas.

When I was working I had a pretty regimented eating routine. I ate 6 small meals a day comprised of protein, fruits, veggies and carbs. I maintained a good weight and had it down to a science. So well, I could indulge myself in my biggest weakness…………………………..

Chocolate ~ white, milk, dark, any and all.

Change caused my routine to fly out the window and I began grabbing and stuffing into my mouth whatever was convenient……………..

Chips, crackers, pretzels, trailmix, cereal, frozen dinners……………………

No veggies, little fruit and almost nada protein.

It was outa control.

And though I knew I shouldn’t, I’d eat chocolate. Then I’d feel awful after I devoured it.

Some love affairs you just can’t end.

So a week ago I committed to a new meal plan. It wasn’t anything new or something I didn’t already know, just a different approach to clean eating. Something fresh for me…………………..a change.

Although the meal plan allowed chocolate as a treat, I told myself, “no chocolate.”

Ok, cutting off my chocolate is like cutting off a lover.

The desire drives me crazy!!!

So I thought it was extremely funny my writing exercise for the day was to write a poem of seduction using couplets (were two sentences together rhyme).

I immediately began to write about chocolate!!

I was seducing a chocolate bar; my forbidden fruit!!

I have really lost my mind and need to get a life!!

My seduction of chocolate……………..I’m not really good at seducing anything else πŸ™‚

“Chocolate Pleasure”

I miss your sweetness on my lips
you creaminess surrounds my hips.
Deep and dark, you satisfy
melting pleasure unjustified.
Surround my senses with your embrace
you take me to a secret place.
Well skilled lover could not compare
your satisfaction takes me there.
Oh, the pleasures you make me feel
smooth as silk such joys revealed.
Take you in a little at a time
savoring slowly I make you mine.
Close my eyes in a lustful escape
my tongue enfolds the sinners taste.
Sneak inside your loveliness
devour you with no regrets.
Smooth my skirt, I look around
my pleasured weakness can’t be found.
Such ecstasy’s are still forbidden
when you know there’s excess to be ridden.
